Are you a peach grower looking to increase your profits? The 2012 Spring Peach Update meeting will target all facets of fresh market peaches including new varieties, insect management, disease control, ground cover management, mechanical peach trimming, farm marketing strategies and much more.

Sponsored by the Michigan Peach Sponsors, Michigan State University Extension (MSUE) and the Michigan Society for Horticultural Science, the meeting will take place March 6 at the Jordan B. Tatter Conference Center of the Southwest Michigan Research and Extension Center in Benton Harbor, Mich. It will feature a full day of meetings on everything from growing to marketing quality peaches and nectarines.

Attendees will be eligible for credits toward recertification of Michigan pesticide applicators licenses.

Numerous accommodations are available off I-94, close to the Southwest Michigan Research and Extension Center. Advanced registration is $25 for current Michigan Peach Sponsor members and $30 for nonmembers. After March 1, the cost for each will be $5 more.
